First Presbyterian Church
We are a warm and inviting Christian community where all are welcome. It is the purpose and desire of First Presbyterian Church of South Saint Paul to open our doors to anyone seeking love and acceptance. Inspiring worship experiences and challenging learning opportunities encourage us to serve others as well as to laugh and play together.
The Christian faith is to be lived and not memorized. We allow ourselves the freedom to ask difficult questions about God, about our world and about how we are to live our lives to the fullest. Wherever you are along life’s journey, we will help you find encouragement and support, rest and refreshment, joy and laughter, inspiration and challenge.
